I passed my LCSW exam on the first try today! The exam was tricky, but I felt I was well prepared and used the techniques taught in the program. There were very few topics that weren't covered in the program. The TDC mock exams are very similar to the actual exam, and I actually found them to be more difficult than the actual exam. I would highly recommend this program.
Amanda- I literally took you in the room with me! Your course was amazing. Not only was the course material very thorough, your study tips were great. They really calmed me down. Thanks again!
I passed my ASWB exam yesterday! I want to thank TDC for helping me prep and pass the CA Law and Ethics and ASWB exam. TDC does an excellent job of covering topics and strategies used on the exam. Highly recommended! Thanks for helping me become a LCSW.
I want to share that after four tries over a seven year period I finally PASSED on my 5th attempt!! Seeing 'fail' on that screen four times was very discouraging, but I wasn't going to give up. A friend recommended this study guide and initially I was hesitant. After using this program I am a believer and I'm so so thankful. TDC taught me how to think for this exam and gave me the confidence I needed to pass. Thank you Amanda and Bethany....you've helped me achieve my goal of obtaining my LCSW!!!
A huge thank you to the TDC developers and coaches for their amazing program. This program not only assisted me in successfully passing the LCSW examination, it has also allowed me to begin a new chapter in my professional career. Thank you again!
I just wanted to say that I took my LMSW exam today and passed!! I cannot thank TDC for all the great ideas and tips Amanda gave in her lectures. I highly recommend this program to all fellow social workers and will be using it for the LCSW exam in the near future!
I found this system to be better for me as it was interactive. After I failed the first time by 6 points, I spoke with Bethany who listened and did add more macro study material as that was the bulk of my first test. Overall, I would definitely use this program again. I do not like study guides where you have to read huge books. I listened to the audio several times on my way to and from work. That helped me the most. The mock exams were exactly like the test. Thank you.
TDC did a great job once again! I used this system to prepare for the L&E exam and didn't have problems passing that exam. So it was a 'no-brainer' to once again choose TDC to prepare myself for the LCSW exam. Of course I was nervous taking the test, but once I sat down to take the test, I really could hear Amanda's voice in my mind coaching me. Your mind will be in the right place & you will succeed if follow this system of learning/preparing for the exam.
Thank you Amanda and Bethany for helping me prepare for the exam. Although I was nervous about taking the exam, I felt confident as the test began and I read the questions. I did take a break at about question 95 because I left like I needed a break prior to continuing!
The Therapist Development Center prepared me for my clinical social work exam superbly. I felt confident in what the questions were asking and how to reason through. I can't tout the worth of these materials enough. They are the only thing I used to study, and I passed both my California Law and Ethics and ASWB Clinical social work exams on the first attempt.
Very thorough study guide. It prepared me well. Mock exams were a must to pass this exam. The audio rationales helped too.
Thank you so much Amanda and Therapist Development Center team! I never thought I would conquer both exams for Licensure on the first try. The strategies, preparation and content of your courses helped me go into the exams well prepared and confident. Most importantly I am a stronger clinician thanks to your materials and lectures. Thank you for what you do! I am truly grateful for strong clinicians and leaders like you and your team in this field!
Thank you so much to Amanda and all of the TDC team! Today I passed the ASWB clinical level exam! Using the program was super helpful in organizing the different materials and guiding me with practical ways to study. I initially felt overwhelmed and anxious about all of the different topics the exam tests, but the program was great in structuring the materials which lessened my anxiety. In the end, I felt confident and well prepared on the day of the exam and found that the strategies TDC recommended to me were extremely beneficial. Bethany was also very helpful in answering questions and getting back to me in a timely manner. Definitely going to recommend the program to peers and colleagues. Thank you again TDC!!!
The moment I heard the first session and went over the Top 50 Topics I knew this was the perfect study plan for me. How TDC breaks everything down, the self quizzes, the quick studies and all of Amanda's tips were just what I needed to help me bring all the information back to memory. When I sat for the exam, there was not a question that I totally felt shocked by, controlling the test anxiety was my main issue. I felt well prepared information wise thanks to TDC!
I passed on my first try! I couldn't have done it without TDC. The study material and format was just what I needed to really learn and comprehend the material easily. Thank you!
I would thoroughly recommend these study materials. I have been out of school for 27 years, and the testing part of this process felt daunting. These materials were well organized and by following Amanda's plan and advice, I passed both exams on the first try in a five month period. In addition to passing, the materials improved my practice in several ways. First, it was helpful to have the DSM 5 workshop, as my County was still using the 4. Also, focusing on assessment and treatment modalities made me more confident and well rounded as a provider. The L&E prep was useful for those thinking about starting their own practice in California. I also paid for additional phone coaching sessions with Robin, and she was extremely helpful from a knowledge base perspective as well as helping to build my confidence. I will be recommending this program to others!
I would like to thank the TDC team for putting this wonderful website/study program together. I can truly say I only studied this info and felt very confident going into the test. I passed today (1/9/17). Thank you so much!!!!
This is a great program to help you refocus the material and to allow for the interpretation of questions. I had previously taken the test twice within a two year span and even with many other guidelines and study materials out there, my brain was in serious overload. I love the way that Amanda and her team were able to provide audio guidelines with the material; I am both a visual and audio learner and for me it was so helpful. Definitely worth the investment...I highly recommend it. I PASSED!!!
TDC really helped me feel confident about taking the exam. I felt confident walking in and I could hear Amanda encouraging me that I was prepared! The test was difficult but I was able to implement the critical thinking skills taught through the program. The quick study guides were very helpful as well! This was my first try and TDC helped me rock this test! I highly recommend it to everyone!
The TDC program was absolutely invaluable. The quick studies, quizzes, support from my coach Bethany and the recordings were incredibly helpful. Also, the schedule helped me stay focused, accountable and with a goal. I was surprised at how much of my exam was vignettes, so the mock exams really prepped me for that. Two questions on my exam were almost an exact mirror of questions from the mocks. Thank you again. Like I mentioned in my email, I've asked for a lot of extra assistance and guidance and you were so incredibly helpful. I really appreciated that additional support. I've recommended your program to many of my friends who are studying right now or preparing to study and I hope they use it!
